#read Carpenter, Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien. Gives another angle on his works (& life, though he’d prefer only 1st). Poignant towards end.

Just #read The Great Gatsby (again). Makes much more sense as an adult. That’s two Great American Novels in a row, both of the Midwest.

#read American Gods (HT @heatherelder for the tip!). Loved it, but I wish @neilhimself wasn’t so down on sex. Is it always a trap?

#read Hunter S Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Terrifyingly plausible drugged romp thru Nixon era US.

11:09pm Apr 12 2014 —

#read CS Lewis, The Great Divorce. Almost in one sitting. Full of insights and clear exposition.

7:46pm Mar 16 2014 —

10:26am Mar 15 2014 —

#read Defeated Tolkien’s “Sauron Defeated”. Suddenly dumped into Oxford with the Inklings – contrast with and yet background to Mordor.

11:52pm Feb 26 2014 —

#read Tolkien, Return of the Shadow. Gripping read. The whole Trotter thing is fascinating and mysterious!

10:25pm Sep 10 2013 —

#read Cock and Bull Stories. Great light reading, nice insight into Marlborough farming. Bit of an emotional wallop at the end! 7/10

7:17am Oct 12 2012 —

#read Tolkien, Book of Lost Tales 2. Fascinating but very dark, as befits stories written 1914-16. Loved the fairy-stories-of-England angle.

7:35am May 21 2012 —

#read Fee & Stuart, How to read the Bible for all its worth. Disagreed with some, preferred F to S, but still a great 1-vol summary.
